How to enjoy this itinerary

Love, care and professionalism

The route Northern highlights Maldives liveaboard 10 nights include 3 dives per day with 2 nights dive. We always have, at least, 4 guides onboard. We aim to have a maximum of 6 divers per guide, but we usually try to make smaller groups, especially when our guests are not very experienced in the submerged environment. Some dives are relaxing and meditative, some others can be challenging for some of us due to the currents or the rough seas. 

 Our guides respect the seas and its conditions. For us safety always comes first: we say it and we mean it!

The first dive happens in the early morning, when the sun comes up suddenly at about 6:00 am. We will wake you up with a big smile, some dry biscuits in the coffee area and the map of the dive spot ready on the screen.

The first dive culminates with a full and rich breakfast: eggs the way you like, jam, fruit juice, hazelnut cream, honey, pancakes, cakes, yogurt, fresh cut tropical fruit and vegetables. If you are a coffee lover, we can make you happy with our wide variety of mocktails. 

⇒More than one hour of relaxation or a visit to a desert island are possible choices before the second dive, which will occur between 10:00 am and 11:30 am.
